1.8 vs Type R
Hi, I'm looking to buy a Honda Civic, my options are limited
Budget around 10000€
I could get a 2007 Type R with 150k+ km (one of my dream cars)
2010-2011 8th gen 1.8 Sport or Executive, maybe even a 9th gen. 50-120k km.
I would use the car as a daily driver (40-50km daily) with some weekend trips and long trips a few times a year.
The one thing I'm not sure about the Type R is ride comfort. Some roads in my country are not that great, lots of bumps, half-assed repairs are pretty common
I'm a young guy, have a job, no family yet, so this seems like a really good opportunity to buy a sporty car/hot hatch, maybe I won't get the same chance in a few years. But if it's more pain than worth to own one, I would be satisfied with the basic 1.8, maybe a Type S but I can't find those over here. Also, what are some differences between the 8th gen and 9th gen? Which one should I go for?
